Enforcement of RRS 42, wind speed limit in Class Rule C1.1

Following to a proposal of the Australian 470 Class Association, signed by the multiple 470 World Champion Malcolm Page, the General Assembly voted in favour of the reduction from 10 to 8 knots the wind speed limit from which pumping, rocking and ooching may be allowed. This Class Rule change will be then submitted to the ISAF for its approval.

Coloured hulls (Class Rules D1.1.c)

Following a proposal of the Management Committee, the General Assembly voted in favour of the deletion of the provision which states that the outside of the hulls shall be only white, thus answering to the possible demand of sponsors to personalize the hulls with their brand colours. This Class Rule change will be then submitted to the ISAF for its approval.

Honorary Membership

The General Assembly, on a proposal of the Management Committee, granted the Honorary Membership to Mr. Alain CORCUFF (FRA), actual Secretary General of the 470 Internationale and its tireless and most valuable officer, as well as Race Officer at the Class Championships, for at least three decades.

The General Assembly, based on the bids received from National Class Associations, granted the right to organize the following championships to:

  • Junior World Championship 2009: Greece, Thessaloniki
  • Junior World Championship 2010: Qatar, Doha
  • Master's Cup 2008: Bulgaria, Varna
